The leases to the Earl of St. Albans' trustees expired in 1740, and further leases of the seventeen houses were granted by the Crown for terms which expired in 1810. The houses were stated to be in a ruinous condition in 1739, and were then to be rebuilt. Ultimately the houses came into the possession of the Prince of Wales (George IV.), and were occupied by some of the members of his establishment up to about 1826, when he relinquished the occu

The United Service Club was built in 1826, and extended eastwards by the destruction of a house in 1858-9. It is now to be 118 and 119, Pall Mall. extended still further by the destruction of

There is a certain appropriateness in the absorption of these houses, for both of them have been connected in a roundabout way with the Services: No. 119, latterly, by housing Hugh Rees, Ltd., military booksellers, who have moved into the Howell & James's block in Lower Regent Street. I am, however, more interested in No. 118, through having lived there for sixteen and a half years. Its military associations are

PALL MALL.

THE forthcoming extension of the United Service Club at the expense of the adjoining property, No. 118 and No. 119, Pall Mall, suggests a note on the lines of the interesting articles which the late MR. W. E. HARLANDOXLEY contributed from time to time on changes in Westminster, and may help that desirable work, a history of Pall Mall to date.

Through the courtesy of the Office of Woods, I learn that the site of the doomed houses is within the bailiwick or manor of St. James's-in-the-Fields, which was purchased by the Crown from the Abbot of Westminster in the reign of Henry VIII. Part of the manor was granted on leases by Queen Henrietta Maria and her trustees, and by Charles II., to trustees for Henry Jermyn, Earl of St. Albans, who granted sub-leases of a plot of land at the east end of the south side of Pall Mall, with seventeen small houses thereon. No. 118, Pall Mall, stands on part of this ground, which does not

William Cobbett, who enlisted in the 54th Foot in 1783. He started publishing in 1796, his shop (in 1800) being at "The Crown and Mitre," 18, Pall Mall. He disposed of his business in March, 1803, to a man named Hardy, who was succeeded at the end of the same year by John Budd (Edward Smith's 'William Cobbett,' i. 308). In June, 1810, Cobbett was prosecuted, along with Budd, Hansard, and Bagshaw, for an article in The Register (of 1 July, 1809) on flogging in the Army, and the four of them were sentenced to varying terms of imprisonment, Budd getting two months. At this time Budd was at 100, Pall Mall. In 1813 the business belonged to E. Budd, and in 1814 the firm became Budd and Calkin, and moved to 98, Pall Mall in 1822. Budd was probably a Cornishman, and may have been connected with Edward Budd (1771-1853) of the West Briton, Truro (Boase's 'Collectanea Cornubiensia,' p. 115: Add. MSS. 29, 281, f. 187).

On 5 July, 1827, a ninety-nine years' lease was granted to George William Budd
